    Probing the Primordial Universe using Massive Fields

    School
    ASTRONOMY

    In this talk, I will introduce the primordial standard clock as a tool for probing the very early stages of our universe, taking advantage of (potential) presence of massive fields by that era. I will discuss how massive fields may allow us to answer fundamental questions about early universe e.g. by probing the underlying theory of inflation or discriminating inflation from alternative scenarios. I will also discuss current bounds/hints for the resulting signal and point out interesting forthcoming observational prospects ...

    Quantum Topology, Geometry and Dynamics

    School
    MATHEMATICS

    It is well-known that classical invariants of algebraic and differential topology, including smooth fundamental group, smooth singular homology, de Rham cohomology as well as Morse homology, are not sensitive to smooth structures of manifolds but modern physically-based (TQFT) invariants like Donaldson or Seiberg-Witten invariants are so. Thus it seems there should be a deep relation between quantum theory and manifold theory. In this talk, we investigate this relation. Our starting point is that as classical mechanics is not adequate to describe the structures of atoms and we need quantum mechanics to see atoms' structure, classical algebra ...
